Top Recommended Christian Education Program for Youth

Journey to Adulthood is a complete youth ministry program of spiritual formation for 6th-12th grades. It uses Bible study, prayer, rites of passage, outreach ministries and both serious and playful activities to underscore its two guiding principles:

1. Manhood and womanhood are free gifts from God.
2. Adulthood must be earned.

Diocesan Youth Programs

Visit the Youth and Young Adults website to stay current on events in the Diocese of Georgia. Three retreats in particular should be highlighted as these events by teens and young adults for teens and young adults have an excellent track record of positive life change:

New Beginnings
This is a weekend for 7-9 graders that is an excellent entry point for teens who would benefit from getting connecting to other teens through our youth programs.

This weekend for 10-12 graders is our strongest program. Led by high school (and some college students) for high schoolers, this is often an incredibly powerful experience for participants.

A weekend for over 18-year olds, often college students, who are considering their vocation. This does not mean ordained ministry alone, or in most cases, but considering what comes next now that you are an adult.
